Road traffic offences

IBB’s road traffic department prides itself on providing a tailor-made service to both individuals and commercial clients.

Road traffic offences encompass offences such as speeding or driving with excess alcohol or excess axle weight. Some offences are dealt with by the imposition of penalty points on a driving licence and some are not. Some offences attract obligatory disqualification and some discretionary disqualification. The accumulation of penalty points has different consequences depending upon the driving history of the offender.  In all cases, early expert advice is essential in achieving the best possible outcome.

We offer a 24-hour service so that we can represent you at a police station at any time of the day or night. Whether face to face or via telephone conference, we advise on how to respond to requests for information from the police or how to prepare for a court appearance. Our court advocates have years of experience representing clients in court and provide reassurance and guidance at each stage of the case.

You may want to have a disqualification removed or want to offer a defence of special reasons or exceptional hardship — in all cases, early preparation is essential.

Some of the offences we regularly offer advice on are:

  • Speeding
  • Using a mobile phone while driving
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving without a licence
  • Careless driving
  • Drink driving
  • Drug driving
  • Dangerous driving
